Donovan Spann, 18 – a senior at New Start High School – was tragically killed in an accidental shooting on Friday night, March 10, Highline Public Schools announced Monday.

Another teenager has been arrested in connection with the fatal shooting incident.

The King County Sheriff’s Office said that shortly after 5 p.m. on Friday night, officers responded to reports of a shooting at a house in the 10200 block of 23rd Ct. SW in the White Center area (map below).

A few days ago the resident of the home left the 17-year old suspect to housesit. Prior to leaving, the homeowner – who had been burglarized recently – gave the suspect a gun.

Police say that Friday night, the suspect invited his friend Donovan over to hang out. They were playing with the gun, and according to the suspect, they decided to play Russian roulette. Unfortunately, the suspect fired the gun in the direction of the victim, striking him. The suspect called 911 quickly and patrol and fire responded but were unable to revive him.

The suspect was subsequently booked into the King County Youth Services Center for Investigation f Manslaughter 1st Degree. The case will be forwarded to the prosecutor for a filing decision.
